You may also reserve the remaining bits of the extract for other recipes such as mantou's.
I've received a number of requests for the pandan pancake recipe since posting this shot of my pancake stack on Instagram, so here you go!
Recipe by The Bakeanista; yields 12 thick pancakes
- 6 large eggs, separated
- 230g plain flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 200ml milk (you may try using coconut milk too)
- 6 tbsp of concentrated natural pandan extract
- Pinch of sugar
- First separate the eggs, putting the whites into one bowl and the yolks into another.
- Add the flour, baking powder, milk and pandan extract to the yolks and mix to a smooth thick batter.
- Whisk the whites with the sugar until they form stiff peaks. Fold into the egg yolk batter – it is now ready to use.
- Heat a good non-stick pan on medium heat. Pour some of your batter into the pan and fry for a couple of minutes until it starts to look golden and firm. When you start to notice bubbles, loosen pancake with a spatula and flip it over. Continue frying until both sides are golden.
- Stack the pancakes up, then top or layer with whatever tickles your fancy before digging in. ;)
If you do not have access to pandan leaves to make your own extract, you may replace with the store-bought ones. Maybe start with 1 tsp of the Koepoe Koepoe pandan extract first, then add more for a more intense colour/flavour.

As you can tell, I really love pandan a lot, and have blogged about it in the past as well. You can check out these other recipes if you're interested but note I used store bought pandan extract back then:
I just made another batch of pandan extract and I'm planning to make pandan bread next! I'll update you with how I go. Happy baking! :)
